School concert for "Brother"

We performed our school concert, with the theme "Friendship", to the "Brother" company, to say thank you for their support and amazing contribution towards Olievenhoutbosch Christian School.

Through the concert, we used Bible stories which teach us values of friendship:

Grade 0:  "The death of Lazarus" - Showing empathy towards our friends
Grade 1:  "Two friends walks with Jesus" - Hospitality
Grade 2:  "David and Jonathan" - Loyalty
Grade 3:  "Fishing with Jesus" - Helping our friends when they are in need
Grade 4:  "Peter, John and the crippled man" - Praying with and for our friends

"Jesus" in the story of  Lazarus

Our guests: The awesome staff of Brother!
